[Review] Bukkha ft. Killa P – “Death Chat” (Dub-Stuy Records)

[Review] Bukkha ft. Killa P – “Death Chat” (Dub-Stuy Records)

Forthcoming release from Dub-Stuy Records connects two worlds to create really dangerous one. Dub meets grime here, Bukkha’s heavy riddim mixes dub effects with grime beat. On top of it, we get one of grime’s most recognisable voices – Killa P. 100% murderer style.

On the flip side, we get very nice instrumental, which connects a solid beat with melodic parts and sampled vocals. The track moves very smoothly between melodies, dubwise and combination of both, which changes the centre of gravity and the mood.Very good showcase of Bukkha’s skills.

Format: 12” Vinyl/Digital
Release date: June 9th, 2017

[Review] ZamZam #51 / #52 (ZamZam Sounds)

[Review] ZamZam #51 / #52 (ZamZam Sounds)

Two recent releases from ZamZam Sounds should satisfy all fans of heavyweight dubs and both of them will do this in a different style. The releases number 51 brings two tracks of Systemwide; “Low Orbit”, remixed by Alter Echo”, delivers a message of the outer-space: a minimal but powerful bassline is a foundation for a universe of mysterious sounds and samples. This is the exploration of bass and dub universe which I love in ZamZam’s releases. The B side is Dubkasm’s remix of “Liberation” and it’s a deep, mystical steppers in the best style of the Bristol duo.

The release number 52 continues delivering heavyweight vibes. From a mysterious atmosphere, we’re moving to a sound system dance, where a powerful steppa riddim by Bukkha and Madplate Sound combined with the great voice of Junior Dread mashes the area – “Nada A Perder” (“Nothing To Lose”) is a real dancefloor banger with a conscious message.

Bukkha Feat. Junior Dread – “Guns N Fiyah SP” (Dub-Stuy Records)

Bukkha Feat. Junior Dread – “Guns N Fiyah SP” (Dub-Stuy Records)

Artwork- DigitalForthcoming release from Dub-Stuy Records brings a massive, marching steppers produced by Bukkha with a charismatic Brazilian singer Junior Dread (which some of you can recognize from Moonshine Recordings presented on our site). His reggae-chanting voice style carries an important and timeless message, which humanity still needs to hear.

The next single from Dub-Stuy Records marks a return to conscious messages and uplifting vibrations with an international collaboration between American producer Bukkha and Brazilian vocalist Junior Dread alongside a remix from Paris’ Moresounds. ‘Guns N Fiyah’ speaks to the ills of the world and the
growing cries for justice emanating from the streets of America, Syria, and Brazil.

Bukkha, originally from Louisiana and now based in Spain, follows remix and behind-the-scene dubplate collaborations with Dub-Stuy with an irresistible stepping production for his first vinyl release on the label. Inspired by classic UK steppers and dub, ‘Guns N Fiyah’ is driven by a heavy bass line with floating guitar licks and ominous horns. Completing the production is a stunning vocal performance from São Paulo’s Junior Dread. One of the brightest rising stars on the international reggae scene, Junior Dread calls upon listeners with a conscious message that rises to a fever pitch in the chorus. Molded in the finest tradition of protest music, ‘Guns N Fiyah’ is an inspirational rallying cry for modern dancefloors.

The 12” also includes two dub versions of the title track: one by Bukkha and a special from Moresounds, the Parisian producer who’s been making waves in the bass music scene with releases for Om Unit and Doc Scott. As only he can, Moresounds transforms the original into a deep and cavernous eyes-down skanker. Completing the release is ‘Cocaine Dub’ by Bukkha, a bottom-heavy riddim that draws its own line between classic dub vibes and modern bass music.
